Summary0008465: failure of Chinese glyph to transfer from character palette to SE or frame
DescriptionChinese Simplified Language pack was downloaded from MS.
This gives 2 fonts, MS Song, and MS Hei, both TTF.
While Scribus will find these fonts, and they can be inserted using the character palette, they do not appear in the SE window or in the frame, and on exporting to PDF, Preflight Verifier says "Glyph missing".
However, one can use Properties to highlight the glyphs, then change and font in Text tab, and then glyphs show.
Steps To ReproduceDownload and install the above language pack.
Start Scribus.
Use the font, above behavior noted.
Additional InformationI also ported the .ttf file to Linux, and it worked without problems, also exported to PDF, no warning from Preflight Verifier.
Am uploading the MS Hei font file.
TagsNo tags attached.

The glyphs are apparently inserted using the current frame font. The fact that those glyphs do not appear in SE is normal : one have to change the SE display font.

Doesn't work in Linux either if previous char font or frame default font has not been assigned previously.
